] that would have been unimaginable. >> now mr. cruze says his dad made it on his own without government assistance. he worked hard and provide for his family and now his son has achieved the american dream. that's the way this country is supposed to work. but president obama himself has a very compelling story to tell. his father abandoned him. he was raised primarily by his maternal grandparents in hawaii. he had few resources. yet, barack obama rose up to become the most powerful man in the world, a stunning achievement. how much the system helped mr. obama is unknown as his college records have been kept private. we don't know the extent of affirmative action. we don't know how much the government subsidized his climb to the top. it would be very helpful to have that information simply to be fair to the president and his vision there is no president obama believes his discuss is is due to government that goes to the famous line "you didn't build that." so the battle lines are now drawn between senator cruise who believes in the free market and small government and president obama who

with the current government funding measure now set to expire in less than 10 days. meanwhile, the white house let it be known late last night that president obama will announce today his nomination of assistant attorney general tom perez for the open labor secretary seat on his cabinet. and at the national press club here in washington this morning, republican national committee chairman reice preibus is set to release a report for a plan on how to expand the party in the future. and that's where we want to begin with you this morning in our first 45 minutes on the "washington journal." we want to hear from republican callers, just republican callers today about this report and the recommendations in it. in these first 45 minutes, we'll set up the phone lines for republicans in the eastern and central region at 202-585-3880. in the mountain and pacific region, republicans can call 202-585-3881. you can also catch up with us on all your favorite social media silingtse, on twitter and to ook, or email us journal@c-span.org. i want to take you to the statement yesterday. he was on cbs' "face the na
consultations, building on what we've already discussed, as bb has just formed a new government as i am entering my second term, that you know, we continue to have close consultation around some of the shared interests that we've already discussed. iran being, obviously, a prominent shared concern. i want to make sure that the israel people and israeli government make sure how i'm approaching problem. and i want to make sure how the israeli government and prime minister is approaching these problems to make sure there are no misunderstandings there. with respect to the peace process as i've said, i'll have more to say about this tomorrow. but i think you're absolutely right over the last year, year and a half, two years, two and a half years, we haven't gone forward. we haven't seen the progress that we would like to see. there's some elements of good news. i mean, the fact of the matter is even with all that's been happening in the region, the palestinian authority has worked effectively in cooperation with the international community in part because of some of the training that we, the united
and local government have absolutely been desmated by rising healthcare costs, rising pension benefits they're paying out to retirees. this is the last strom they're paying what is left for snow removal, and they may have to ask for more money. the only silver lininges it forces families to stay home. have that dinner table conversation they might rather not have. they're all stuck in a dark room and can't use electronics. so there's so positives. >> neil: there is that. i'm wondering, this whole first quarter of the year has been buffetted by one storm after another and i'm wondering how it's going to affect the overall economy in terms of gdp and big data we get. will it be slower or is the boom you generally get after something like this make up for it? >> well, again, we still have the head wind from the rise in the payroll tax, which is absolutely affecting consumers. also, gdp will be faked. corporate earnings will be affected be the rising dollar and slow european recovery, if there is a recovery. and when we look at the storms, many in the northeast have fallen othe weekends, the ti
the facts before me, that we know the syrian government has the capacity to carry out chemical weapon attacks. we know that there are those in the syrian government who have expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necessary to protect themselves. i am deeply skeptical of any claim that in fact it was the opposition that used chemical weapons. the broader point is, is that once we establish the facts, i have made clear that the use of chemical weapons is a game changer. >> warner: both leaders spoke extensively about iran and about the different timetables the countries are on for possible military action to prevent an iranian nuclear weapon. mr. obama said he thinks there is still time for diplomacy but added: >> each country has to make its own decisions when it comes to the awesome decision to engage in any kind of military action. and israel is differently situated than the united states, and i would not expect that the prime minister would make a decision about his country's security and defer that to any other country, any more than the united states would defer our de
don't have time. whether redraw the limit regarding the use of drones that government agencies, where to reach out that line? under what circumstances do we require search warrant click should police use only for surveillance? of local government allowed jones to search for traffic violations and building code violation? should the federal government use drones to see whether their fraudulent clicks were reasonable limitations are appropriate for where and when to use drones. additionally, in examining the use, congress needs to examine the use and limits by private citizens in the air. where do we draw the line of balancing immediacy under the first amendment to be protected from invasion of privacy. another area is innovative use of drones and coming from a rural state as a chairman does, we have a lot of agriculture. drones can be used by farmers to help a farmer survey crops were quickly for early signs of disease. subform a spray crops to maintain baker, check livestock, prevent livestock and equipment. these are all timesaving and cost-saving benefits to agriculture. no farmer w
at this in a small section of society. what is the south korean government going to do about it? >> reporter: yeah, i think you're right. south korea is one of the most connected countries in the world. north korea one of the least connected at presence very minimal on the internet, but the upper echelons even have access to the internet. but they have illustrated they have put a lot of effort, training, resources into getting the best and brightest in north korea trained up on cyber warfare tactics. they're very prevalent on the inside in attacking particularly south korean institutions, they've done it on a number of occasions. south korea has been trying to address that. they've got their own training college to sort of sort of train cyber warriors. they also have a special committee they formed just today to tackle this crisis whether they're going to identify the threat they say and implement the kind of countermeasures they say they need to prevent this from ever happening again. >> matthew chance, thank you so much from seoul, south korea. >>> well, tensions rising over the civil war in syria.
$7100. that's for an individual. for a family of four, the cheapest insurance that the government's going to allow you to buy is going to be over $20,000. now, you compare it to what the premiums are now for individuals, it's about $5,000 for an individual, that's the average price of private insurance, so you can just see an average of a little bit over 5,000 to over 7,000, and for a family of four the average right now is a little bit over $14,000. so that'll go up to 20,000. that's just going to happen with these exchanges when they get set up next year. of -- now, so that's the cost of insurance. but you were supposed to pay a fee or fine if you didn't have insurance. for somebody that makes about 50,000, that fine would be about 1600. if you make $100,000, it'd be over $2,000. but the thing is you really won't even have to pay that, even though that's already quite a bit less than the insurance would cost you. and the reason is because in the obamacare bill it's set up so that the irs, basically, will find it impossible to collect the money from anybody. you know, the irs, it
has already used weapons of mass murder. >> the rebels say the government unleashed the chemical weapons. the regime leaders claim they are the real victims here. now, an international investigation into a possible crime against humanity. the apollo rockets brought mankind to the moon. but the rocketd engines fell back to earth. tonight, the mission to recover them from the ocean depth. and animal abuse caught on camera. now, a beach closed down because of what workers saw these women doing to some seals. with or without food. my doctor recommends citracal maximum. it's all about absorption. ♪reflective guitar♪ tony stewart: time teaches you things. you learn to look up to people with the courage to do what they love. that it's more than just a living, it's life. and in that time i've found that's the difference between leaders and everyone else. you'll have to pay five hundred bucks for your deductible. the truth? at allstate, you could pay zero. allstate gives you a hundred dollars off your deductible the day you sign up. then another hundred off every year you don't have a
are sort of the first step to the government coming into your house and trying to take away your guns. so that, i think, has been the, you know, the strength of their appeal. much more so than dollars and cents. they're part of the culture in parts of the country. >> we put that poll up, and we saw support for some level of gun control go up after newtown. now it seems to be slipping back a little bit more. i think karen has a great point, rana. it really is that slippery slope argument. >> it is. listen, i grew up in rural indiana. i understand parts of the country have different attitudes about guns. again, i think we've really gotten a twisted view of what the american norm is. if you go back to the 19th century or the earlier part of the 20th century, gun control laws were much stricter, even in free-wheeling -- or places perceived as being free wheeling like texas, colorado, western states. i think that our sense of normal has just moved so far away from what a middle point is that we need to get back there. >> rana, karen, thanks to both of you. >> thank you. >> thank you. >>> also
into the sea of japan today as the bellicose rhetoric of threats from the dprk government intensified. the defense secretary ordered missile defense on the west coast to be reinforced. fourteen additional icbm@ interceptors readied for use if needed. at the state department is finally revealing the number of americans who were in a line of fire during the benghazi terrorist attack. and the extent of those injured. six months after the september 11th attack. the latest for you. tonight we begin with the end of the wall street winning streak. the dow jones industrials finishing in the red today after posting a string of eight consecutive record high closes. ten consecutive winning sessions for the dow. the dow dropping 25 points today. the s&p lost two and a half. the nasdaq fell nine points. but for the week, all three indexes posted gains. the dow jones industrial of 117 points since the opening bell monday. the s&p picking up nine and a half, the nasdaq up five. the wilshire 5,000 measuring the paper gains for the entire market for the week at $1,205,000,000,000. and the total market
place, leading to huge securityish a us in egypt next door. egypt has a government. not entirely functioning government but it hasn't cancelled the historic peace treaty with israel. but security situation in egypt is collapsing all around it and that is the real fear, if they have total collapse. al qaeda elements increasingly large roles in the opposition. and a real issue of authority next door in syria, post assad. >> martin, let's talk about the other major issue here that is certainly on the agenda there. president perez said today after his meeting, that israel trusts the u.s. policy to prevept iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. not just to contain, but to prevent. do you foresee, martin, any change from the administration towards iran either in action or tone? >> i would imagine that the administration does not want any change for the time being. and i would just like to add to your introduction. i'm not sure it is true to say israel trust the united states completely. they need to say that they do and they need to believe the united states because they are still -- th
with the israeli government? >> you know, i think as much as anything, he's trying to slightly reset them with the general israeli public. one realizes that netanyahu knows what the deal is. they've met ten times? that's far more than he's met with putin, far more than the leaders with china and ironically more than some particular congressional leaders. but reputations and images, as you know, good and bad, are hard to lose. and here's a situation in which the image among both conservatives in this country and among the israeli public fly in the face of what are the facts. never in history on many levels, intelligence sharing, military aid, security information being shared has a relationship been any stronger than it is today and a little bit of news if you're listening to that press conference was that this significant military aid package that we have with israel that we give israel, looks like it's going to be extended by another ten years as of the year 2017. now, that doesn't sound like mortal enemies at work. and when you look at what played out today and it wasn't just the joking
to ask? my deposits are about to get snatched by the government, and, you know, that's a real problem. you're going to see it spread. sandra: spencer, you can't run and hide. if you're an investor, you have to be in the market. how do you hedge risk? >> get real assets, look at commodities. oil did well. you saw the grains do well. they were up in a down market. you saw gold basically be flat. get in real commodities and get out of stocks because stocks are at all time highs. there's no reason p why you should buy now. sandra: peter, you are a bear with the u.s. dollar. it was the euro that took it hard today. >> yeah, you know, the euro was down, but back to the stock market, the stock market doesn't go up every day. just because it went down today, it's not a big selloff in reaction to the news. i mean, you are going to get down days. i think the market should have gone down more than it did because of the problems, but i think all the money printing is what's going to keep nominal stock prices rising. no one way or the other, you lose value of the deposits because if the bank doesn
, you know, the federal government and the banks don't want you to save money, because the banks can get their money from the fed for 0% so why would they let people save money. they would dread you put the money in the stock market and take a chance you're going to gain or lose. it's against a person wanting to save money. host: when did you start saving? caller: i'd say about 20 years before i retired. host: and you retired at what age? caller: 59. old enough to start drawing my 401-k. host: so the company you work for provided a 401-k? that's when you started investing? caller: yes, but you know they didn't match anything. what i put in there was my money but we had profit sharing. but they never matched what i put in. it was my money. host: do you think that -- did you ever use a financial advisor? caller: no. i got my money in chase, managed accounts, they managed my money. before it was through fidelity, and i could manipulate it myself, and that's when i lost half my money, because i didn't move it fast enough, and i took a big hit. host: so you didn't take it out of riskiers a cr

the threat of a government shutdown next week. not shutting down the whole federal government used to be the kind of thing you could reasonably expect from your congress, the kind of thing they get done as a matter of course. under house speaker john boehner, not shutting down the government has become a notable achievement for this congress. mozle top on that. a low bar. >>> house republicans also voted today again for the paul ryan budget. democrats are very excited about that because they plan to use that vote against republicans in campaign ads for the next election. we have the one and only ezra klein here momentarily to sort out what's important about what they just voted on in congress and whether we just avoided one of the cliff slash ceilings clash crisis congress now schedules for us every few weeks and whether the way they avoided this next one is itself important. there's a lot going on in the news. we have a lot ahead. we begin tonight with late breaking and rather surprising news from the democratic leader in the senate, senator harry reid. following two days of angry
. but in all seriousness let's agree that the challenges in government that will always exist seem to be more difficult to surmount today than they were a decade ago and i'm wondering if you can talk about what has change add whand can reverse those trend. >> that is my story and i'm sticking to it that things were perfect. there were a lot of things. we dealt with a series of crisis. we had an impeachment crisis. we had a 9/11 crisis. we had an an thrax attack in my office. when you have crisis like that it brings people together. i think partly it was the circumstances and the environment we had to confront. devissive had very times. the schedule has changed a lot. we would work longer weeks and people were there for a longer period of time. the venues for communication were much more readily at hand. we had -- we used to have two lunch tables that are just for senators and you'd is it family style and people would have lunch together. and for whatever reason that lunchroom was closed. we used to have social events where we get together and one was around our spouses and we'd salute or spo

is skeptical of claims by the government that rebel forces have used chemical weapons. they've ause caused each other of using such weapons yesterday. 31 people died in the most recent fighting. president obama says the u.s. is investigating to see if any chemical weapons were used. >>> the federal reserve said stimulus is still needed. the economy has become stronger after a pause late last year. more needs to be done. he says as long as inflation remains mild he plans to keep short term interest rates at record lows until unemployment falls to 6.5% and that's not expected to happen until 2015. >>> on wall street the comments helped drive the markets higher. the dow closed up almost 56 points. the nasdaq was up 25. the s&p was up more than 10 points. >>> growing concern over genetically engineered seafood. the significant step taken by some large u.s. retailers. >>> still a few light showers outside right now. you see the clouds. how long do they last and when do we warm up again? i'll have the time lines back in 10 minutes. l month long as one of ou
on the federal government to set them up. >> no money was budgeted for the federal government to do that. congress seems unwilling to give the administration money to do that. we're looking at a very messy situation. >> house republican speaker john boehner said in a statement today that three years into obamacare, health insurance premiums have, quote, spiked, and the price tag for the overall law has, quote, nearly doubled: rick? >> molly henneberg, thank you very much. >> the u.s. senate passing its first budget proposal in more than four years, voting in a marathon session ending just before dawn this morning. >> the ayes are 50. the nays are 49. >> the senate has passed a budget. >> the nonbinding proposal, along with a measure passed in the house is expected to serve as the basis for future negotiations with the white house. elizabeth prann has more from our dc news room. >> it may have taken all night, but the senate narrowly approvessed the budget for the first time in four years, passing 50-49. it's a $3.7 trillion blue print plan raising a trillion dollars in new taxes and the
they are eating a larger portion of americans' paychecks and the government's budget. if we continue on our current path, the medicare trust fund will be insolvent by 2024. and medicare and medicaid will grow from 24% of the federal budget to almost 30%, crowding out other needed investments. we have to reduce health care costs in both the private sector and public sector in order to ensure america remains competitive in a global market, but there is a right way to reform our health care system and there is a wrong way. with all due respect, mr. ryan's path is the wrong way. mr. ryan's plan for medicare and medicaid misses the point. his solution simply shifts the costs from government to patients rather than reducing health care costs. under the ryan budget, seniors would pay as much as $1,200 more each year by 2030 and $6,000 more by 2050. for over half of medicare beneficiaries with incomes less than $21,000, a $1,200 increase is a huge piece of their budget. he also proposes block granting medicaid, which would cut medicaid funding by approximately $700 billion over the next decade and

arm the syrian government, although it rawn insists it is humanitarian aid. the u.s. has asked iraq to force the planes to land in iraq for inspections. but only a few have been checked. they have long been a point of conflict between the and u.s. iraq. >> the intent here, fwy going public, is to increase the pressure on al-malma laki. but it shows how minimal our ability to affect the conflict in syria has become. >> kerry said that iraq can be be part of the political discussion about syria's future until cracks down on the iranian shipments. >> shannon: thank you very much. the head of the western-backed opposition in syria is supportedly stepping down, resigning out what have he calls frustration with a lack of international efforts to oust the leader assad. >> this resignation is really shows how fragmented the syrian opposition is and even if assad were to fall, the western allies don't know who to call and talk to. right now, the syrian opposition is in two camps. you have the free syrian army, the locals who have risen up against the regime. but on the other side, have you e
taxes taken out of the pockets of hardworking american families, more government spending which adds to the trillions of dollars in debt that will be handed down to the next generation. our friends on the other side of the aisle talk about a balanced approach, but they refuse to even balance their own budget. our vision calls for a stop to washington's failed policies and reckless spending. it says american families and small businesses understand you can't spend more than you take in. you need to balance your budget, and it's time for washington to do the same. this vision seeks to protect the things that we value most, to keep the promises we made to our seniors, to our veterans. i'm the son of a u.s. marine. while at the same time allowing us to leave a better future for our kids and our grandkids, that's the vision i want to work toward and that's why i'm proud to support the house budget committee's proposal which we'll be voting on later this week. this isn't about passing a budget for one year, just one time. this is about creating lasting solutions that help grow our economy

responsibility for security to the afghan government. chief washington correspondent james rosen joins me live now. james, bring us up to date. >> reporter: good morning. every leader between u.s. leaders and hamid karzai seems to be fraught with tension and this one is no different. aides say secretary kerry's talks will not dwell on the karzai's allegations that the u.s. and taliban are conspiring to weaken the afghan nation. rather they will discuss security concerns as the u.s. and nato mission in afghanistan winds down over the next 29 months and the need for transparency and fairness in the upcoming elections. for the first time in 12 years hamid karzai will not appear on the ballot. over the weekend jon mentioned secretary kerry met with another leader that. iraqi's leader, nouriel malaki. he wants iran to stop using iraqi airspace to deliver foreign fighters to the fighters and the regime in damascus. >> may made it clear members of congress and people in america are increasingly watching what iraq is doing and wondering how it is that a partner in the efforts for democracy and a partn
works towards a nuclear weapon. and as we try to determine whether the government of syria has already deployed chemical weapons against its own people. because, in the words of our president, that would be a game changer. >> we have to make sure that we know exactly what happened, what was the nature of the incident, that what can we document? what can we prove. i have instructed my teams to work closely with all of the countries in the region and international organizations and institutions. to find out precisely whether or not this red line was crossed. >> shepard: talk of syria dominated much of the president's news conference in jerusalem this afternoon. he spoke alongside benjamin netanyahu. just a day after both the syrian regime and the syrian rebels accused each other of deploying chemical weapons. now, so far u.s. officials say they have no evidence that those accusations are true on either side. but president obama says he is deeply skeptical that of any claim that the opposition rebels used chemical weapons at all. he did not say the same of the syrian regime. we have team
